January 19 (Renewables Now) - Swedish renewables developer OX2 AB (STO:OX2) said on Thursday it has obtained a permit from the local authorities to put into operation the 40-MW Grajewo wind farm in Poland's north-eastern Podlaskie province.
After the approval of the Podlaskie Building Supervision Inspector the farm can start producing electricity from wind, the company added. The 12 wind turbines of the facility are estimated to generate an average 130.6 GWh a year, enough to power 40,000 households.
OX2 started the construction of Grajewo as a turnkey contractor after it sold the project to global renewables investor DIF Capital Partners in March 2021 along with the 23.1 MW Sulmierzyce wind farm in Poland's west-central Wielkopolskie province.
Under the contract with DIF, OX2 will be responsible for the technical and commercial management of the wind facilities once they are put into operation. The Grajewo was commissioned a week ago, project contractor CJR Renewables said then.
